Spring will be official this week (woo hoo!), so I’ve cleared out the winter decor and ushered in the spring fantasticness. First up was the mantel. I have been keen on green this season, which isn’t usually like me, so I was able to find these awesome plants with planters at Ikea.
Next, I repurposed a chalkboard frame that I used for Christmas to make a wall art focal point by covering it with some black and white chevron fabric. Nothing a staple gun can’t handle!
Then to give it a little contrast in style I added a strip of burlap ribbon across the front. This stuff is so useful. I could cover just about anything with it!
I recently made a nautical mirror (see how I did it here) and a sparkly vase (see how I did that here), so I added those into the springy vibe. I grabbed a couple of candles and a ceramic bird I’ve had make an appearance from time to time, and there you have it. My spring mantel!
Truth shall spring out of the earth, And righteousness shall look down from heaven. | Psalm 85:11
